Full Description

Copper engraving, 42 x 52.5 cms, original hand-colour, French text on verso. Aragon in northeastern Spain, engraved after a map by João Batista Labanha (1555-1624). The Blaeu firm was official cartographer to the Dutch East India Company (VOC), and Blaeu globes were carried on all VOC vessels; its map-making was of the highest quality at a time when the Low Countries were at the forefront of the international market.
